Begin

God says:

Can we finally begin now?

Become who I know you to be

Your soul knows the way

Be content with the smallest gestures—

the sun rising, a cup of vervain, the hummingbird returned

Smile instead of clench, even when Life has you under her thumb

See how many times you can fall in love,

Every day.

Say thank you, because the whole of it is a trunk of treasure

Leave your fingerprint on as many heart surfaces as possible, the rough and the smooth

Trust Me in the valley, I see the mountaintop ahead.

Remember, I go wherever you go,

Love is stubborn that way.

You were created to rise

I am rooting for you

Today is as good a day as ever,

Begin.
